Several Roads Inundated with Flood Waters

Jun 5, 2020

As of 4 June 2020, several roads in Mumbai remain inundated with flood waters due to persistent heavy rains, following the landfall of Cyclone Nisarga along the coast of Maharashtra state’s Raigad district, approximately 50 km (30 mi) south of Mumbai. The cyclone caused significant damage to the low-lying coastal districts located to the south and southeast of Mumbai, with widespread damage to property, numerous uprooted trees and downed power lines. At least four storm-related fatalities were reported in Raigad and Pune districts, which were among the areas worst affected by the storm. Operations at Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (VABB/BOM) resumed on the evening of 3 June, while numerous flights to and from Pune Airport (VAPO/PNQ) were disrupted due to inclement weather conditions in the late hours of 3 June.

Cyclone Nisarga has largely dissipated as of 4 June after weakening to become a depression during the afternoon of 3 June. The storm’s remnants are continuing to track east-northeast over the inland Indian states of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh and toward the western Himalayan region in Nepal.
